Can I claim income tax relief for cleaning my uniform?
A lot of people may read this question and think 'sorry? claim tax relief for washing clothes - you must be joking?!'
Well the answer is 'yes you can'.
The rules are that you can get tax relief on the cost of repairing, cleaning or replacing a uniform if
- it's a recognisable uniform that shows you've got a certain sort of job - like a nurse or police uniform
- your employer requires you to wear it while you're working
- you've got to pay for it yourself
The tax relief also covers the cost of cleaning, repairing or replacing the uniform.
